Virginia Commonwealth University VCU Dining Services Earth Hour Event: On Saturday, March 27, at 8:30 p.m. Shafer Court Dining Center and Jonah’s will take part in Earth Hour — the world’s largest climate change event. By simply turning out all nonessential lighting for one hour, Dining Services will join tens of millions of concerned citizens through...out the world in calling for action to save the planet. The locations will remain open, but with limited lighting during this hour. For more information about the VCU event, contact tmhighsmith@vcu.edu.

Well, if we could convince most of the Universities in the U.S. to turn out the lights - AND KEEP THEM TURNED OFF - America might be a much better place.

Perfect!

I hope someone stumbles about in the dark, trips over a desk, and sues the university for everything it has...

How about turning the damn lights back on and studying so you can find a job and help pay for Obamacare?

We always called it Viet Cong University.

Guess they want it to be more like North Korea --

I just designed their new cancer center lighting. It’s pretty green as far as lighting go, better than the previous design.

“the world’s largest climate change event”

I believe it was the emperor Caligula who battled the sea. Now we’ve advanced to taking on climate. That’s progress. In any case, I wonder if any of these participants will see the irony of turning out the lights and sitting in the dark. Probably not.

I celebrate every Earth Day by turning on every light in the house. I only wish I had a big spotlight or searchlight in my yard to light up.

8:30 PM Saturday, local time, as I understand it.

I’ll be turning on all the lights, the furnace, and washing a load of laundry.

In 2009 the Competitive Enterprise Institute, in the link below, offered a short video in celebration of Human Achievement, a concept they promote to counter the leftist-ecotard-dimwits' Earth Hour (very appropriately symbolized by "lights out" as in the superstitious Dark Ages).

 




Celebrate Human Achievement Hour,

Virginia Commonwealth University participates in Earth Hour, turns out the lights

Students who wish to study during that hour may congregate in my backyard where I will light up my woods. (Pilots on approach to RWY 27 at CDW look to your left when on short final.)

Sadly, I will be participating in this earth hour scam this year. I’ll be camping and have no electrical power nearby at all.

Let me get this straight...they are turning out the lights in a campus dining hall? Sounds like a good opportunity to use up all that expired mystery meat!

I remember eating dorm food back in the day. It would have tasted better if I didn’t have to have seen it.

I have one of those $12.95 500 watt Quartz Work Lights, going to fire up the generator to power it.

Does it qualify as a searchlight?
